|ULM thumps Middle Tennessee|
Jyruss Edwards rushed for a career-high 191 yards and three touchdowns to lead ULM to a dominating 42-14 victory over Middle Tennessee Saturday afternoon at Malone Stadium in Sun Belt Conference action.
Edwards has scored seven touchdowns -- six rushing -- and totaled 297 yards from scrimmage over the past two games. His 191 rushing yards are the seventh most in school history. Edwards moved into a tie for seventh place on the ULM single-season rushing touchdown list with nine and a tie for 11th on the ULM career rushing list with 13. Today, Edwards had touchdown runs of 17, 41 and 31 yards.
The Warhawks (3-7, 2-4 Sun Belt) scored on their first five possessions of the game -- a Sun Belt Conference era record for ULM -- to take a commanding 35-0 lead with nearly 10 minutes remaining in the opening half. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Warhawks against the Blue Raiders.
ULM gashed the Middle Tennessee defense for 260 yards on the ground and 193 yards through the air for 453 yards total. Kolton Browning completed 15-of-18 passes with touchdown passes to Je'Ron Hamm and Brent Leonard; his two touchdown passes moved him into a tie for sixth on the all-time ULM touchdown passes list with 29.
The Warhawk defense held the Blue Raiders to 138 yards on 38 carries; it marked the 24th time in 34 games under defensive coordinator Troy Reffett that ULM held its opponent under its season rushing average.
Luther Ambrose set the tone on the opening kickoff of the game as he returned it 59 yards to the Middle Tennessee 38-yard line; it was his fifth return of 40 or more yards this season. The Warhawks needed just six plays for Browning to find the end zone from three yards out for his seventh career rushing touchdown.
On the Blue Raiders (2-7, 2-4) third play of the game, Andrew Banks fumbled and Ken Dorsey recovered for the Warhawks; ULM has forced a turnover in 30-of-34 games under Reffett.
Another six-play drive for the Warhawks resulted in a 14-0 lead for the home team. Edwards carried the ball on five of the six plays, including a 17-yard touchdown run to cap the drive. Another turnover, this one on an interception by Vincent Eddie on Middle Tennessee's first play of the ensuing possession, set the Warhawks up at the 43-yard line.
The Warhawks were a little more methodical on their next drive as they used nearly six minutes of game clock and 13 plays before Browning found Leonard from 12 yards out for the score. ULM controlled the ball for nearly 35 minutes in the game despite running 17 fewer plays than Middle Tennessee.
Following a Middle Tennessee punt, Browning needed just five plays to extend the Warhawk lead out to 28-0. Following a 16-yard completion to Mitchell Bailey on third-and-four, Browning hooked up with Hamm for a 50-yard touchdown strike; the play was the fifth longest of the season for the Warhawks and longest touchdown pass of the year.
Another three-and-out by the Warhawk defense and punt by the Blue Raiders gave the ball back to the ULM offense. After converting a third down, Edwards rushed around left-end for a 41-yard score and a 35-0 lead.
The Blue Raiders finally got on the board on a 19-yard touchdown pass by Logan Kilgore to Sancho McDonald with 3:45 to play in the opening half. Kilgore finished the game 21-of-30 for 148 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His second touchdown of the night came on MTSU's opening possession of the second half with a 14-yard pass to Tavarres Jefferson.
Edwards capped his impressive night with a 31-yard run right up the gut of the Blue Raider defense late in the third quarter.
